1000 Book Kid Program

1000 Book Kid Program

Sponsored by the Malta Sunrise Rotary

The Malta Sunrise Rotary is sponsoring a 1000 Book Program at both branches of the Round Lake Library.  This free and easy reading program encourages preschoolers and their parents to borrow, share, and read together.

[column-group] [column] How It Works

  • Select and check out 10 children’s books
  • Inform the librarian that this is a 1000 Book Kid.  Your books will be put in a special bag
  • When you return your 10 books and bag, circle the next number on your child’s card. (each number represents a group of 10)
  • When you have circled 100 numbers your child will be awarded a special sweatshirt courtesy of the Malta Sunrise Rotary.
[/column] [column] Why do it?

  • Because anguage acquisition occurs before children enter school.
  • Because it challenges whole families to read 1000 books with their children before the end of first grade. Increasing the family’s bond.
  • Because it fosters a positive connection between books and family.
  • Because it helps children develop a lifelong bond with reading and books.
